We mail bills every month.  You will get one or more of these types of bills.

  • Brown & White postcard bill – when you live in our service area, you’ll get this bill every month.  This monthly bill includes treatment charges, past due amounts, and fees.  Non-payment on this bill will result in termination of your water services.
  • Blue & White postcard bill – this represents monies that have been turned over to collections.  You can set up agreements on these bills.  If these go unpaid, law suits and liens can result.
  • Brown & White Owner notifications – these are mailed to owners whose tenants are delinquent.
